April 4, 2009: Blackbeard's Booty
Don't bother calling, it's not that kind of booty.
The corrosion on the piece of silver is easily removed.
All that gold would fit in a thimble, and since it was found mixed in with some lead, scientists speculate someone hid it in the ammo locker.

I think that's 22 feet of water then the ship is buried in the mud and sand, but it's a lot easier than in deeper water where they find most of them. They've been working on it for a dozen years so it can't be too intact.

After he blockaded Charleston, SC, he was pardoned by the Governor of NC, but the Governor of VA had him killed anyway.
